    Hello, I'm finding this question quite hard:

    "Calculate the overall percentage change, stating whether it is an increase or a decrease. An 12% increase then a 12% decrease."
    I understand that you would change then to their multipliers so 12% increase= x 1.12 and 12% decrease = x 0.88
    Then you multiply the multipliers so 0.9856 but I'm really confused as to what you do next? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
